Dudley Young Commissioners Project:

If you are aged 14 and above and interested in the services that young people in Dudley have access to, would like to have a say over the services that are provided  young people in Dudley or if you are interested in a career in the public sector then this is the ideal place to start. Anyone who joins will be asked to give 2 hours a month (which will be for training provided by the University of East London) and a 2 night residential in London during October half term. You will then get to be part of a conference in January 2019.  This is a really great opportunity and we are very excited that the University of East London are working with us on this.


Arts and Emotional Health: Dudley Take Five, Saturday 28th July at DY1 Community Building, Stafford Street,  DY1 1RT 11-3pm

Young people of all ages across Dudley are getting involved in film, art and music to promote wellbeing, having a creative look at ways to make every day feel better.

If you’re aged 14-19 (up to 25 if you have a disability) you would be very welcome to join us in central Dudley on Saturday, July 28, 11am-3pm to find out more about the young adults’ programme.

Professional artists will be showing and sharing some of the activities on offer over the summer and explaining how you can get involved to create Dudley’s own Take Five YouTube channel. Food and drink will be included!

Have your say and tell us what life feels like as a young person in Dudley:

If you would like to get involved then you will receive a gift voucher and travel expenses, food and drinks.
